Welcome to a new year at Pine Hollow Middle School! This is also my first year at PHMS and it's my first year at a year-round school. I am excited to be on this adventure with you. In science, we will have five major units and a small introductory unit. You can find out more information about what we will be learning specifically in the "Curriculum Map & Objectives" section.
Some important things to know:
I will be having after school tutoring sessions each week this year once we get into our first unit. There will be a form to fill out if you'd like to have your child attend. Please know that this is a week by week basis depending on need for that specific objective. Keep a look out in the weekly updates (here) for when that will begin. As of right now, it will be on Tuesday afternoons, but that may change due to required staff meetings.
I really do love having parent and family involvement in my classroom! If you would like to volunteer, I'd love to have you! Just send me an e-mail and we can work something out. If you have a science background and would like to co-teach a lesson about what you do, let me know and we can start planning. Even if you don't have a science background, we can still find ways to get you involved if you'd like to be. Extra hands are always needed during experiments and labs!
For some of our projects this year, I will be asking for parent volunteers. If you already know that you would like to volunteer in the future, please contact me. Otherwise, the need for parent volunteers will be included in the weekly update. Thank you! :)
